Joffrey Reynolds appears on immigration matter
CALGARY - An immigration adjudicator has ruled that a former star player with the CFL Calgary Stampeders be released from custody.
The ruling says Joffrey Reynolds must abide by certain terms and conditions.
Reynolds was arrested after being charged in an alleged domestic assault against a former girlfriend.
It was then learned that his Canadian work permit had expired.
Reynolds told the adjudicator that Calgary offers him a greater opportunity to be productive.
Reynolds is a four-time CFL all-star and was a key player in the Stampeders' 2008 Grey Cup win.
He was released from the club last year but wasn’t picked up by any other team.
Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version spelling Reynolds's first name wrong.
